It’s the first of May, and we haven’t planted anything. I thought you were supposed to wait until after Mother’s Day in Colorado, so we’re really right on schedule.
When I came downstairs to tell S. a story tonight, he was busy drawing ninja knives in his three-ring binder. I admired them, of course, because ninja knives are cool and awesome, and he’s not allowed to draw them at school. I know, that’s a discussion for another time, another venue. Anyway, when we were tapped out on knives, I asked him if he wanted to do some garden designing with me. He did!
He’s interested in planting pumpkins, corn, and carrots. That sounds about right to me. I’m not a very organized gardener, but three new vegetables should be manageable, right?
As we make our way through May, the focus here will be on urban plants and gardening. How do you put roots down, when you’re surrounded by concrete? Well, roots always seem to find a way.
